Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) recently appeared on Hugh Hewitt’s radio show where he made a strident call to investigate the investigators.

“I have said that we need a special counsel. We also need oversight hearings. It’s not either/or. It’s both/and. And look, I said, I demanded answers, Hugh, from the FBI. I sent them a letter. I’ve sent them two letters now, actually, particularly on this counterintelligence investigation that Andy McCabe has told the world about, and that we’ve learned about, and that they launched against the president of the United States. You know, this is a spy. I mean, counterintelligence is a spy investigation that they launched against the president because from what we can tell, they disliked his foreign policy stance. I mean, it’s extraordinary. You talk about a separation of powers crisis, that’s one right there. So I’ve demanded answers from the FBI. They’ve stonewalled me. They have tried to just completely shut out me and my staff, so I’ve said look, if it takes a special counsel then to get up in their business, then that’s what we need to do.

And Congress, we need to put these people under oath, bring them in, put them before the cameras, and make them answer questions. But yes, I mean, we cannot allow what has happened in the last two years to happen again to any other president. And as a Constitutional lawyer, I can say my big concern here is that we need the appropriate functioning of our Constitution. And the elected representatives, the president, the elected members of Congress, they’re the ones who are supposed to be, on behalf of the people, managing our government, not unelected agents, whether that’s the political leadership of the FBI or anybody else.”
